Looking forward to watching these videos. By the way, the “Download” buttons for the two videos above need to be swapped. (The “Download” for the basic video is the advanced one, and visa-versa.)
Thanks Harvey! You’re right – I had the videos mixed around. I’ve fixed it now and they should be correct.
I noticed in your gardening plan that you have squash and cucumbers placed between rows of smaller crops like lettuce and radishes. How do you keep your squash and cucumber vines from overrunning the smaller crops in the neighboring rows?
Hi Ann, that’s a great question and totally valid. There’s a couple factors here. First, since the radishes and lettuce etc. and cool weather crops they are usually finishing up by the time the squash and cucumbers are growing to a larger size. Of course, if you are living in a cooler environment then you could probably grow them straight through the summer. The other thing is that we trellis our cucumber so they aren’t going all over the ground. The squash on the other hand I purposefully put on the end so that you can train them to go outside the garden vs. onto the other beds. It’s true it can be a little bit of a challenge though and something that has to be worked around. These are some of the joys of trying to grow as much as you can in a small space. If you have more space you could make your walkways between the beds much larger to help accommodate the plants. Hope this helps!
You mentioned at one point that you got a truckload of compost. I am wondering who you purchase compost in bulk from? I am in the Jackson, TN area. Thanks!
Hi Paul – great question! Unfortunately I talked with my Uncle John and the farm hasn’t bought bulk compost in a long time now. So I’m not sure where would be the best place to get it at this point. I’d check with other local farmers or garden centers and see what they have available. That would be the first place I’d look. Hope this helps for you!
